Press release:


New from Lowepro – DSLR Video Fastpack AW Series          October 2011

A flexible, purpose-built backpack designed to help multimedia photographers protect and carry a wide range of camera, video and laptop equipment as they capture rich content.

Lowepro, the leading brand of protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronic devices, expands its top-selling and award-winning Fastpack series with the release of the DSLR Video Fastpack AW series. This flexible, dual-compartment backpack is expressly designed for fast-moving multimedia photographers who rely on a diverse set-up of equipment to help them capture and deliver rich content.

Tim Sadler, Category Manager for Lowepro said “We chose one of our most popular designs as the inspiration for the new DSLR Video Fastpack AW series. It’s built to meet the needs of today’s multimedia photographers who shoot stills and video, plus capture sound for their clients.”

The series consists of three models that fit a wide-ranging capacity of pro-sized gear, plus a laptop and accessories. Each delivers an identical and full set of premium features and provides flexible ways to customize equipment.

The lower compartment of each pack protects a pro-sized DSLR or HD video-enabled DSLR within padded and adjustable compartments. A fast-access, side-entry pocket allows the photographers to quickly get to his or her gear by rotating the pack to the front and unzipping the camera compartment.

Pro shooters and enthusiasts who carry sound accessories will appreciate the upper compartment with its storage space for headphones, a microphone, transmitter/receiver set  and other audio gear. This compartment comes outfitted with Lowepro’s removable Custom Audio Utility Pouch to aid in the neat and organized management of smaller audio accessories and cables.

A separate and padded laptop compartment keeps the multimedia photographer’s workstation within easy reach—ideal for uploading stills, video or when posting a new blog entry and keeping in touch with colleagues and clients while on a shoot or traveling to one.

Additional pro-focused features include: a Hideaway Tripod Mount™ to help secure a tripod or DSLR video rig to the side via a foldout holder and strap; hidden ID pocket for quick access to ID or business cards; patented, built-in All Weather AW Cover™ to help protect gear from the elements; stretch-mesh side pocket; grab handle; stow-away waist-belt; and durable, water-resistant outer materials.

The series is available in three sizes in black: DSLR Video Fastpack 350 AW, DSLR Video Fastpack 250 AW and DSLR Video Fastpack 150 AW. For more information on this series and other products, please contact DayMen or visit

  1. Good day
    I have a Question,
    will the DSLR Video Fastpack 150 AW fit my camera body and two lenses? I have a nikon D3100, 18-55 Nikon DX VR lens, as well as the 55-300mm VR lens.

    I can't get a picture anywhere so that I can see clearly if it will fit in, that's why I ask.

    Kind regards

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…
